Our clinic specializes in performing couples counseling. Our patient couples seek couples counseling for a large variety of reasons and at various stages of their lives and relationships. Renewed Relationships works with couples to undergo premarital counseling, marriage counseling, communications counseling, relationships counseling, and counseling for infertility and pregnancy loss.
While these types of counseling differ in content and goals, there are many elements that are constant in all types of couple therapy. We work with the couples to identify individual and conjoint goals for treatment. Couples counseling works best when both individuals have similar goals for treatment and communicate those clearly to each other and to the therapist. The most common goals are improved communication, enhanced closeness, prioritizing the relationship, reconciliation or forgiveness, healing from a hurt, and co-parenting. We use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy to help couples gain the happiness and closeness they desire.
